That crappy browser won't support MNGs until they're used on the web, and they won't be used on the web until some browser supports them. The fact is someone needs to support it before they're commonly used, and I think Mozilla browsers are the perfect ones to do it -- they're used by much more of the population than other non-IE browsers, and have far better support for newer standards than IE. If anyone, Mozilla should be the first ones to implement the new standards, such as MathML, SVG, XForms, and MNG.

I have converted all my animated .gif(s) to .mng(s) using Gimp and I would like to use .mng(s) on my upcoming website and would like my browser to support the free alternative (.mng) for animated .gif . :)

What's the use of converting existing GIFs to MNGs? It's the exact same quality.

It looks like there's been a bunch of action on the bug to provide native support lately. Still no sign as to when it would make it into an official release. I haven't tested it yet, but there does seem to be at least one Firefox MNG plugin.

I don't know. Anyway it is a bit smaller in size. But its more about the freedom concept. I use GNU/Linux/GNOME. I'am trying to move into free, open, royalty-free formats like Ogg Vorbis (audio), Ogg Theora (video), PNG and now MNG.

then it is silly to convert GIF to MNG, but MNG is still a superior technology to GIF for animations you create

There is a plugin here for firefox or seamonkey that works for mng images.
It works very well for me :)

What's needed? The patches work fine, except for occasional bit-rot which I fix as soon as I notice it. The current patches are at mngzilla.sf.net because we were politely kicked off of bug #18574 in December.

Is it possible to maybe just fix this for SeaMonkey, rather than globally? I presume that it's a build issue, so it could be built for SeaMonkey but not for Firefox.
